    Mngqithi new Chippa coach 

    Chippa United was only founded two years ago and has achieved the huge leap to the Premier League for the coming season. They were promoted after a recent playoff and will, no doubt, be signing big talent in the coming weeks.

    Manqoba Mngqithi has been signed for a one year contract as head coach of the up and coming side. His previous appointments include Golden Arrows and AmaZulu.

    Interestingly, he has been signed to replace Roger Sikhakane – the man who lead the Cape side to promotion. The Chilli Boys have a long road ahead but are gaining more fans on a daily basis.

    Park joins QPR 

    We have told our Twitter followers a while back – watch English premier league side Queens Park Rangers this season! Keen fans will have noticed that QPR is putting together a formidable lineup and we tip them to put in a fighting performance in the upcoming season.

    The latest player to join QPR is Park Ji-Sung from Manchester United. He will have gained valuable understanding and experience while playing under Sir Alex Ferguson. QPR’s manager, himself a former player for Man U, Mark Hughes, believes Park’s transfer is a huge coup for the side he manages.

    Park has won four Premier League titles with Man U and made over 100 international appearances for his home country of South Korea.

    Watch closely for further QPR transfers – this team is going places!

    RVP leaving Arsenal 

    The big news tonight on our Twitter page earlier: RVP (more fully known outside Twitter as the magnificent Robin van Persie) has firmly declined to renew his contract with Arsenal! Van Persie has one year left to run on his contract with them.

    In equally exciting news for Arsenal fans, Lukas Podolski has officially joined the club and will start training with them later this month.

    Euro 2012 Final 

    Congratulations Spain! The Spanish side thrashed Italy by 4 goals with no reply on Sunday, 1 July 2012, retaining their title.

    What a way to start the month of July and become the first team to win three back-to-back major tournaments.

    The brilliance of “Super Mario” Balotelli, which saw the Italians triumph over Germany in the semi-finals, was not enough to overcome the patient possession game of Spain.

    Spain was already ahead by 2-0 when Italy was reduced to ten players on the field. Thiago Motta limped off the field injured and unable to continue. The Italian coach Cesare Prandelli had already used all his available substitutions and Italy were not virtually reduced to spectators for the rest of the match.

    Italy had managed a 1-1 draw in their opening group game against Spain, but on the day of the final, Spain was able to find something extra and prove that they are currently the international football side to beat.
